Charles Barkley was in the booth tonight. Charles Barkley. That should have been an instant reason to start watching this episode. Sure, he has nothing to do with baseball and he was talking about basketball and food with David Wells more than the game at hand, but it was still enjoyable. This is reminiscent of when Monday Night Football used to have comedians enter the booth during the game.
The game itself was pretty good as well. The Phillies seemed like a lock to win, but then in the ninth the Rockies loaded the bases and threatened. Brad Lidge didn't blow the game, which was pretty shocking in itself.moreless
